As you’re trying to rescue the lost billionaires in Sons of the Forest, you’ll hit a speed bump where you need to find three keycards — maintenance, VIP, and guest — to explore the deeper areas of a few bunkers. The locations for each of these keycards are spread out around the map, and can be quite tedious to find. Continue reading to find the locations of the maintenance, VIP, and guest keycard.

Maintenance Keycard

To get the maintenance keycard, you’ll need the shovel to dig up the entrance of the bunker.

  5. Keep swimming ahead until you reach a long hallway with an open doorway on the left.
  6. Go inside the room on the left with the open door and continue swimming through the bunker to find a set of stairs.
